Hanabi displays are held in Kinosaki every weekday evening for about one month, from the end of July to the end of August. There are also mini temple festivals with game and food booths, as well as the traditional summer dance `Bon Odori`. One of the most magical events is the Kinosaki Lantern Festival, where you can write your wishes on a paper lantern, put a candle inside and watch it float down the river.
